  Summary  

Edmund Patrick "Eddie" Cahill is an American actor best known for portraying "Miracle on Ice" goalie Jim Craig in the movie Miracle, and for playing the fictional roles of Tag Jones on Friends and Detective Don Flack on CSI: NY.

  Biography  

 early life
Cahill was born in New York City, New York. He is the middle child; he has one older and one younger sister. He is of Irish descent from his father, a stockbroker, and of Italian descent from his mother, an elementary school teacher.

Cahill was graduated from Byram Hills High School in Armonk, New York in 1996. He attended Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York and the Atlantic Theater Acting School, part of the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU.

 career
Cahill first performed professionally in Nicky Silver's Off-Broadway production of The Altruists in 2000. He was noticed, and shortly after made several television guest-star appearances including Sex and the City, Felicity, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Cahill was also a recurring guest-star in the comedy Friends as Rachel's young assistant and boyfriend, Tag Jones. In 2002 he starred in a short-lived WB drama, Glory Days.

In the 2004 hockey movie Miracle, Cahill had the chance to play his boyhood hero, goalie Jim Craig. He had never played the goaltender position prior to the movie, so most of the game-action sequences of Craig were filmed with former NHL goalie Bill Ranford doubling for Cahill, although Cahill did shoot several key sequences from within goal.

When CBS decided in 2004 to create a third CSI series, CSI: NY, to add to its franchise, Cahill was hired to play the cocky, snarky homicide Detective Don Flack who backs up the team of CSIs and who gets some of the best lines.

In June 2011, Cahill went back to the Atlantic Theater Company and performed at the conclusion of their 25th Anniversary season. He was in Tom Donaghy's one-act play, I Need a Quote, about "a hilarious telephone conversation between a single mother and a home insurance salesman."

 personal life
Cahill married his longtime girlfriend Nikki Uberti in Los Angeles on July 12, 2009. The couple had a baby girl, Maria Violet, on December 18, 2009. (Uberti is a makeup artist, former model, and ex-wife of photographer Terry Richardson).

On his right shoulder Cahill has a tattoo of his wife's name in a heart with an arrow through it and a swallow on top.

Cahill is an avid New York Rangers hockey fan. He even wrote an NHL Celeb Blog for three seasons.
